Ten Days to a Happier, Successful Career and Life

“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” said our Founding Fathers. The truths you will discover over the next ten days or lessons are self-evident, too, but they are profoundly difficult to practice. Even as I write this series, I find myself questioning whether I am practicing what I am recommending. So, consider the pursuit of happiness and success in work and life - a journey. These practices will get you started on that journey.

I wish life, family, and work were easy. Really. But, they’re not. The best of you struggle with concepts such as loving your work, balancing home and family life with work, and making the income that allows you to fulfill your dreams. You struggle with a lot more than that, too.

You have kids to put through college, homes that develop leaks in the roof, saving for retirement, and family and friends that actually want to spend time with you. Wow. You struggle with quite an armful.

And, some of you struggle with even more than that. Disabled family members, illness, and life’s unexpected and unplanned for events occur. My basement flooded with three inches of water recently. That’s minor, compared with what many of you experience, but it disrupted my plans for the week.

Recognizing all of this, I have tried to zero in on the ten most important concepts that will help you develop the tools and thinking you need to succeed at work. At the same time, work success is fleeting if you don’t also succeed at home. Life is a balancing act, so these concepts are applicable to your whole person, too.

Happiness is as important as success, so I wanted to include happiness in the equation. Consequently, ten days to a happier and more successful future is the theme for this ten lesson series. Read, enjoy, and grow, but, most of all, benefit from this time you spend thinking about you and your life.
